We got into work this morning and in our inbox was a lovely update from Jess who had been working in the Bristol shop for a few months up until Christmas. She is now off on a new grand adventure, and if you are a regular at our shop and have met the bubbly young Jess, we thought you would enjoy hearing about her news...

Buongiorno howies!

I've been in Italy for a month now, working as an intern for the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice. Really enjoying the work so far – there’s a fantastic team of people at the Guggenheim.

My days out here tend to start off with the sound of church bells and end with a glass of ‘spritz con Aperol’ (a very Venetian, bright orange aperitif), with a fair amount of twentieth-century art in between. For those of you that know me, you’ll know this is pretty much my ideal cup of tea! Sono molto contenta a Venezia!

Here I am ice-skating infront of the Verona opera theatre, sailing across the Grand Canal and putting Severini’s Blue Dancer (Ballerina blu), 1912, to bed. PREGO!

Till next month,
